will amount to about $16 million u.s. starbucks along with google and amazon have been using legal loopholes to minimize their corporate taxes in britain. execs of all three companies recently got a public -- >> despite the fact that starbucks, how much money it makes. it's kind of like a drop in the bucket. >> well, yeah. yesterday we pointed out that between all the various ways that starbucks takes there is really nothing left, nothing at all left for profits. today what the company announced is that they are going to take the money that they pay in royalties and the money they pay on inter-company events like loans, and here going to no longer take deductions. what does this mean in reality? in practice it means there will be money, more money, for starbucks to pay as corporation tax, but here's the thing. >> okay. >> they say they'll pay maybe $50 million this year. the numbers are still being worked out. similar amount next year. well, you might have gotten that the british say, oh, yes, nice round of applause. not a bit of it. people are saying in this country tonight fair enough, sta
's positive things being said about microsoft and google. when you look at alternative operating systems, whether it's microsoft and their own hardware, this to me is the issue and has always been their issue, they're not going to be able to stave off hardware which becomes indistinguishable. and when you get to places where margins are cut razor thin and will do it better than apple, they can do it cheaper. this is the fundamental issue, it's not a technical issue. >> i would disagree on a microsoft side. microsoft reported their original os 8 numbers. they didn't give any of the surface numbers there. i think you're exactly right in terms of android. especially in an emerging market, that's becoming a bigger deal. keep in mind it's getting to some of these numbers for next year, it doesn't require the big apple growth that they've had. in other words, if they can just gain a fractional share and get to where they want to go. let android have a lot of the emerging markets and apple can beat the street numbers for 2013. >> gene, brian kelly. over the last 12 quarters you changed the pric
